Welcome to The Village of Lyons

Welcome to the Village of Lyons' website. While some of our pages are currently under construction, our goal is to provide you with useful information about our community which we hope makes us a desirable location for you to visit, live or do business.

In 2014 The Village received grant money to spruce up our downtown.  We also received grant money for the Hazel DeVore Park which has been used to build a fishing platform, kayak launch, walking paths, bath house and other things all universal compliant.  The Park is still under construction but will be open again by spring 2015. 

The Village of Lyons was incorporated by the Board of County Supervisors under the General Law Village Act of 1859. In 1887 a legislative charter was obtained and the Village of Lyons has since continued it's legal existence.

The founding father, Lucius Lyon, was born February 26, 1800, in Shelburne Falls, Vermont. He was favored with a common school education and went on to study engineering and surveying. Mr. Lyon traveled to Detroit at the age of 22 and was appointed Deputy Surveyor General in the territory northwest of Ohio. He held this position until elected to the United States Congress in 1832. In 1836, Mr. Lyon, being concerned with the survey of government lands, entered this area upon which the Village of Lyons now resides and proceeded to develop our village.

Feel free to browse our website. If you have comments or questions, or simply need more information and desire to contact us, click the "contact us" on the menu pane.

We thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to hearing from you.
